The Devil Wears Prada dropped their new album The Act on October 11 via Solid State Records.
“I’m not one to get particularly excited about music videos these days, but I think that the technology [director] Kevin Johnson and the crew were able to employ for ‘Chemical’ makes it something special,” said singer Mike Hranica.
7 albums and over a decade into their careers, you could be forgiven for thinking that The Devil Wears Prada might start phoning things in as they aged. Clearly this isn’t the case, however. The band is still going strong, even releasing some of the best albums in their discography (especially 8.18 and Transit Blues) in the last half decade or so. Even if you listened to the album’s pre-release singles like “Chemical” where TDWP dialed things back a bit, it’s hard not to be impressed by the band’s evolution on The Act.
